as march. if i can call that early. is it your sense, do you get any sense from the obama administration whether it's interior or state, whatever it may be come the white house itself, that the president has rethought this matter and is taking a different approach? >> well, i don't know that for sure. i can tell you that we have been working with his department of state during this entire process. they have been to all the informational hearings and they know exactly what is going to be in the environmental impact statement. so i'm not sure if they need more information than that. it is time to say yes or no, approve it or not, and i think most americans would say that it's time to approve it, let's get moving forward. lou: okay, thank you very much for being with us. we will be watching along with you and the folks to see what the contribution that the keystone xl pipeline will be making for energy future. thank you, governor. >> thank you, lou. lou: up next, chairman of the senate foreign relations committee, senator john kerry, certain to be the next secretary of state. we will take
she'l he'll lack. and she did play a role as the obama administration would assert in restoring the american image, but i think there will be more points of continuity than discontinuity. >> rose: how do you assess her four years? >> >> well, i think she was good at restoring the american image. i think she trafd a lot. she went to 112 countries. i think she had some success in asia. but i don't think she or the obama administration has many notable diplomatic accomplishiments. the syria problem is-- seemed. the middle east situation seems pretty much stalled out. can. >> rose: do you believe benghazi will be a cirrus law on her record? >> i think it is a flaw. but i don't think it will be a lasting flaw. it was a systemic breakdown. there was an independent review that established there was a lot of culpability of a lot of people on the sixth floor of the state department, but she was on the seventh floor, and certainly, her posture has been she accepts responsibility for what happened but not blame, and that's pret much what played out today in two hearings. she was uncharacte
-out a rocket launch in december. the obama administration sponsored the measure. north korea is not believed to have the technology to deliver a nuclear warhead that's capable of slamming into the u-s. but, its launch last month showed it has the ability to deliver a rocket that could come close to california. has the backing of president obama. assault weapons are not necessary for the average american to own. >> weapons designed originally for the military to kill large numbers of people in close combat. they are replicated for civilian use. in a month after a new town conn where 26 innocent lives were lost to this automatic weapon and a person who never should have owned it we had over 26 killed on the streets of the city of chicago. the national rifle association about to fight any measures that they blocked american freedom. one day after president obama's inauguration house speaker john boehner gave a speech at a private g-o-p luncheon and had a warning for fellow republicans. >> attempt to annihilate the republican party. boehner went on to say he believed the obama administratio
their children. >> ifill: but sparks flew when senate republicans accused the obama administration of deceiving the nation by initially suggesting the benghazi attack was something other than terrorism. senator ron johnson of wisconsin: >> we were misled that there were supposedly protests and then something sprang out of that, an assault sprang out of that. and that was easily ascertained that that was not the fact... >> but could-- but, you know... >> ...and the american people could have known that within days, and they didn't know that. >> and-- with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. >> i understand. >> was it because of a protest, or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some americans? what difference, at this point, does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. now, honestly, i will do my best to answer your questions about this. but the fact is that people were trying in real time to get to the best information. >> ifill: republican john mccain

recommendation of the joint chiefs of staff, the obama administration will announce formally tomorrow that the ban on women in combat is over. they had been making some progress in this direction, recently opening up the special operations aviation command to female pilots, and last year opening uabout 14,000 positions in the military that had been previously off limits to women. but this announcement could open up 230,000 new jobs to women over the course of the next year. the various service branches will make their own plans for how to do it. if there are individual specific jobs that they still want exempt for women, that they want exempt from this new policy, the service chiefs can ask for that. but that will not be the expectation. the priority, of course, is still military readiness and combat effectiveness above all. but they are making this move, starting tomorrow, to make serving equally recognized, equally. to clear the way for women in combat. joining us now is one of the women whose legal case on this issue may have helped push the military to this decision. she is captai
political advantage over the obama administration, over hillary clinton in particular over the attack in benghazi, what ended up looming unexpectedly large over these proceedings was how benghazi is not an unprecedented thing. the state department has had its personnel and its facilities in danger and facing different kinds of attack over and over and over and over again for decades all over the world. and the attempted political acrimony of today's hearing ended up kind of dead-ending today whenever secretary clinton would bring back what congress does not see as a priority does not see the safety that work at the state department and the resources to ensure that safety. and yes, there is a political agenda to be driven, always, always. but in terms of steps necessary to protect people, so far hillary clinton made the case today that congress has been against it. specifically right now, members of the republican-controlled house have been against it. >> we have asked the congress to help us real locate funds. the senate has given us that authority. we don't yet have it from the house
. and there's a lot of frustration among republicans as just a policy matter that the obama administration is not doing more to support the opposition there, not intervening a little more in terms of giving support to the rebels and he will probably answer questions about that, and generally questions about the arab spring overall, what's going on with egypt, what's going on with morsi, those problems ought to be at the forefront. >> different also because he has already been a presidential candidate. and i'm wondering, you know, in terms of contrasting it, ron, yesterday with hillary clinton, a lot of people interpreted some of the answers she gave as looking ahead to 2016. john kerry has wanted to be secretary of state. it's no big surprise that this is a role he has coveted. but for people out there who don't follow politics as close as we might, they might ask a question, why. here is a guy who has been in the senate since 1984. he's been a presidential nominee. why this, why now? >> well, there's two jobs he's always wanted. first, he wanted to be president of the united states and he
. the congress has not fully funded the obama administration request for embassy security, and, two, more funding for some of the governments in the region that need to be stronger to protect us. she pointed out congress has blocked funds that would have us assist the libyan government so, responsibility of security is the host government's responsibility. we rely on them. and that militia group in benghazi failed us on september 11th and 12th, so we need to reenforce the ability of these governments to protect our embassies and consulates in 275 different locations around the world. >> well, that raises a point, michael lighter, if we should be in 275 locations. we don't want to retreat from the world, but basically according to the review board that admiral mullen and pickering went through, they looked through the videos and say this host government local militia just turned tail and ran before the attack, or as the attack, was taking place. >> i think what we saw in libya was a slowness on behalf of the state department to adjust to very, very different circumstances in libya. and during the
